    Although its not their area of expertise, the Bang Bros may have done a better job of shipping ( was thinking of saying fulfilling but didn't want to start down that path) my order.

    I ended up with the blue/ red breast wallet, not the billfold, so if someone got the blue/red billfold (not the one with the coin purse) by mistake let me know.

    The shell is very nice, and its a beautiful wallet, I really wish they hadn't screwed up as I may end up keeping it, because its so nice, but rarely using it.

    I'm certain you will really like the one you ordered, and I hope you receive the one you wanted.

    im anxious to see red cordovan in person. are there any marking suggesting the origin of the leather? i think i once red it was japanese, and thus more desirable than even horween

    Nothing on the wallet or the box identifies the origin of the cordovan or the country in which it was made, so I would assume that the BB description is correct.

    I placed orders for the card case, billfold and long wallet hoping at least one would come through (was charged at the time of purchse). I checked my order history this morning and it says my order was cancelled.

    If anyone decides not to keep theirs, let me know.

    Yeah mine didn't go through neither. One at checkout said oos so I only got the wallet without coin pocket.

    All too often I read how someone placed an order with BB online only to have it cancelled later.
    How does a company like that have such a poor inventory/e-commerce system??

    Have people tried calling in after an order was cancelled and seeing if they can locate an item at a retail store, shipping it to you at their expense?

    I've had an order for Black Fleece that has had the shipping date continually delayed for 4 months now. One time I talked to a customer service representative. He told me that for Black Fleece, they actually do not keep stock in a warehouse; rather, they locate the stock in a store and arrange to have it shipped to you. He also said that there are 3 people in charge of coordinating all of this. I don't know what the issue with my order is, but it is sort of a kludged together system.

    The wallets are from like 2010, BB either found stock in a warehouse or then are coming back from Japan. Either way it's pretty rare so I wasn't expecting the order to be filled

    Anyone who wanted the long wallet and got the billfold (without the coin purse) let me know, maybe we can exchange hostages.

    I missed the whole wallet hoopla, but I am curious now with 10 pages worth of discussion. The original link does not work, does someone have pics?

    Google has a few, mostly it's just a full shell wallet (inside and out) with a dark outer color and a lighter (white or red) inner. Japanese cordovan and was pretty rare when it first came out, just popped up 50% off
